Raytheon Co. won a five-year, $48 million contract from the Army to standardize and integrate its communications systems.
Raytheon of Waltham, Mass., will furnish 15 Multiplexer Integration and Digital Communication Satellite Subsystem Automation Systems, known as MIDAS.
The systems offer more efficient and less expensive data communications switching and routing functions and give geographically dispersed users immediate and automated access to voice, video and data communications. They also maintain interoperability with the existing communications infrastructure.
Raytheon, which has about 80,000 employees worldwide and had 2005 revenue of $21.9, ranks No. 6
on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100
list of the largest federal IT contractors.
